Cloth Colouring and Hand Stitching with Bethany Garner
September 11 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 1:00 PM on Sunday, repeating until October 2, 2022
Join textile and fibre-focused artist educator Bethany Garner for a new course exploring two unique textile art techniques at the County Arts Lab! In the first two classes, participants will learn to build colour on cloth to create their own stunning, one-of-a-kind palettes of colour, design, and texture. Through a series of lessons and exercises, they will use easily accessible dyes and paints to create a beautiful layered collection of up to twelve half yards of hand-dyed ombre fabric. The second half of the course will focus on the art of the handmade stitch, with participants exploring creative uses of threads and needles, and adding dimension and uniquely original stitches to their dyed fabric. Participants will gain new skills, confidence, and their own one-of-a-kind piece of fibre art – to be enjoyed as is or used in a future project. No prior experience required; this offering will provide a learning experience for everyone from beginner to seasoned artists!
